If you’ve been thinking of lifting your truck, you have probably wondered “How much does it cost?” While this is one of those questions with no easy answer, our service center at National Auto Plaza can break down the cost to lift a truck, so you can see if it is worth the price. You will also consider other factors such as who will be lifting the truck and if you’d rather shop lifted trucks for sale in our Utah locations. Find out more below! 

Price of Lift Kits

The lift kit you choose will significantly determine how much it costs to lift a truck near Salt Lake City. For the most affordable ones, you can expect anywhere from $100 to $500 for a leveling or body kit. Keep in mind that these are mostly for appearance enhancement. For ones that upgrade your truck’s performance and off-road capabilities, you will need to invest in a suspension lift kit, which will cost you between $1,000 and $5,000. 

Cost of Installing Lift Kits

Not only does the cost to lift a truck is affected by the kit itself, but it is also affected by the installation process. This will vary depending on who installs the kit. If you plan to do it yourself, it will be cheaper, but it will probably take you anywhere from 7 and 15 hours. 

However, our service team at National Auto Plaza recommends almost all truck drivers to get it installed professionally. If you bring your truck to our Murray or Sandy locations, we can give you a quote for a price estimate! 

Lift Kits vs. Levelling Kits

Leveling Kits

Leveling kits are used to even out differences in your truck suspension, but since you can use these kits to increase the height of your truck by one to two inches, they’re often used as lift kits for small boost.

Lift Kits

Proper lift kits have smaller versions that raise the truck by two to five inches and larger versions, that increase the truck’s height by six inches or more. They will change your truck’s exterior and capabilities in the Draper area drastically, so they do cost more. 

Is Lifting a Truck Worth the Price?

Consider the following points before deciding if you should lift your truck or not near Murray: 

  1. A lift kit offers superior ground clearance, better shock absorbers, and bigger tires with improved traction. Most serious off-roaders will find the lift kit a good investment. 
  2. Lifting a truck gives it a more aggressive appearance that stands out from the rest of the crowd. 
  3. A lift kit can improve your truck’s performance, including fuel economy, even if you don’t drive off roads. 
  4. Superior suspension allows a smaller amount of wear and tear, meaning you can spend less on maintenance costs. You can also get higher resale values for your truck in general.
  5. There are lifted trucks for sale in Utah, so you can drive home one without needing to install it yourself or get it installed!
